Deir Ezzor after Liberation: Children Back To School
Local Editor

Schools in the liberated areas of Syria's Deir Ezzor city started the new school year in relative peace after Damascus breached terrorist Daesh's [the Arabic acronym for ‘ISIS/ISIL' Takfiri group] siege and sent much-needed humanitarian aid to the population who suffered years of blockade.

Deir Ezzor

Most of the schools in the city of Deir Ezzor were destroyed over more than two years of the terrorist blockade of the city. As the siege dragged on, thousands of students were deprived of pursuing their studies.

Some learners left school because there were none to attend, while others decided to work in order to support their families. A few students however, chose to continue their schooling, but under trying conditions and amidst constant Daesh shelling.

"Mortar shells were falling on us every day, one after another. Many were injured. We were besieged and remained in that situation until God relieved us," a student at Adel Alwan school in Deir Ezzor told RT.

On September 5, just a week before classes were due to start, the Syrian army with the help of its allied forces finally broke the siege of the city.
